It would be my pleasure to take you on a journey, through a quaint and historical district of what this multicultural city of Toronto has to offer you. THE JUNCTION DISTRICT: I 'll walk you through this decades-old historical neighbourhood which was founded within the northwest area of the historical Junction triangle. During the early part of the 20th century between 1900 and 1920 first wave of European immigrants of Italian, Polish, Macedonian, Croatian, Irish and Maltese who moved to the area where they settled and established a community. Its recent revitalization of coffee shops, restaurants and small boutiques, caters today to its urban inhabitants of hipsters. During this walk, you will view older architecture and witness the new developments within the neighbourhood. What it has managed to retain throughout the years, through its small businesses and landmarks that still holds cultural value and beauty. Even entering some of its business. A 2-hour tour starts with us meeting at TTC Keele Subway Station, situated on line 2. It will take 5-10 mins to brief you on the tour before boarding bus 41. The bus will head north on Keele St towards Dundas St West. When we exit the bus, we will make our way onto the north-west corner of Keele St and Dundas St West. Our walking tour will commence west on Dundas St towards Runnymede Rd return east to our starting point
I'm Vishnu, the founder of Toronto’s Hidden Gems: Tours Off The Beaten Path, who is here to provide my personal brand of service with Soul. I hold 35 years of extensive customer relations experience in the food, entertainment and natural health industries and believe that a key component to living a fulfilling life is to venture outside of one's own cultural surroundings. Being open to learning, experiencing and appreciating what other cultures have to offer, helped me to see the similarities we all hold and share in common. I have a deep love and appreciation for the older neighbourhood districts and value those parts of the city that have retained both a rich historical and cultural narratives. I m here to show the secrets of Toronto, outside the familiar tourist bubble to those interested in taking a journey off the Beaten Path.
We will meet at the Dundas West TTC subway (tube) station on line 2. Board Bus, heading to Keele Street and Dundas West.
